18th Century Gold and Enamel Vinaigrette

About

Antique gold and enamel vinaigrette suspended from two chains joined to a ring. The vinaigrette is decorated with multicolored bouquets of roses, and the interior grill serves to hold in place a piece of cotton or fabric that has been soaked in perfume, assuring that the pleasant scent would last for hours. The ring has a scalloped edge and is embellished with gold floral motifs on alternating purple, red and green sections. The vinaigrette and chains are late 18th century, and the ring is Charles X period. French marks for gold : tête de vanneau (pee wit bird head) (1783-1789) on the vinaigrette and tête de belier (ram’s head) (1819-1838) on the ring. Weight : 20 gr. circa :1785 Dim: W: 1,1 in – D: 1,1in – H: 4,3in. Dim: L:2,8cm, P:2,8cm, H:11cm.
